int pcre_get_named_substring(const pcre *code,
const char *subject, int *ovector,
int stringcount, const char *stringname,
const char **stringptr);
This is a convenience function for extracting a captured substring by name. The arguments
code Compiled pattern
subject Subject that has been successfully matched
ovector Offset vector that pcre_exec() used
stringcount Value returned by pcre_exec()
stringname Name of the required substring
stringptr Where to put the string pointer
The memory in which the substring is placed is obtained by calling pcre_malloc(). The con-
venience function pcre_free_substring() can be used to free it when it is no longer
needed. The yield of the function is the length of the extracted substring,
PCRE_ERROR_NOMEMORY if sufficient memory could not be obtained, or PCRE_ERROR_NOSUBSTRING
if the string name is invalid.
There is a complete description of the PCRE native API in the pcreapi page and a descrip-
tion of the POSIX API in the pcreposix page.
